Today my friends, I'm just checking in to tease you with a sneaky glimpse of my next make for the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network. You see, we've been asked to make something special for the rather epic meet-up next Saturday, that we can only unveil on the day. Which, to be fair, is a huge relief because I've not even started on it yet. May/June is always insanely busy for me due to work and this year there have been social engagements and DIY endeavours added to the mix, so I don't even have time for a muslin. I've cut my pattern pieces out and I'm hoping I can negotiate any fit problems along the way...wish me luck!
Hmmm, what can I tell you about this make? I'm pairing some pretty cotton sateen with Vogue 5671, a 1960s vintage pattern from my stash. I must say, I deliberated over a pattern for ages, but settled on this so I can get a move on with my Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge. I launched this idea in February and I still haven't made any of the 5 patterns I pledged to by the end of the year. I feel that time's slipping away from me, whilst you lot are putting me to shame with your amazing #vintagepledge makes! So, I'm hoping to rectify this!
Are you going to the Minerva meet-up on 14 June? I really hope to see you there!
